The Video Project
Watch this professionally made high-quality video to introduce the subject:
O.K., here's how it is going to happen:
Find a few partners. We will need to be in seven groups. One group will have three members and the rest will have four. Decide on a leader for your group.
Pick what scene your group wants to re-do. You can choose any scene that you feel has importance to the plot. I think you may be best served by choosing from:
The video will be around 6 minutes, so you can only have so much.
Decide what twist you are going to put on it. Here are some suggestions, but you may pick your own.
The point is that you are going to show me that you KNOW this scene and what makes this scene important.
Start planning it out. Here is the "storyboard" that I used to figure out my little video (I know, you thought it was made by a professional). You will need some sort of a plan to make it actually work. What props will be needed? What costuming will be needed? What sort of special effects are you going to use?
Start filming. Here is how this works. We will be in the
It allows you to layer video and images over each other. Here is a screen shot:
You can see this is a scene from the Jurassic Park version. At the bottom of the image you can see three layers of video. The bottom layer is my background. It must be on the bottom because everything else needs to lie on top of it. The middle layer is of me standing in front of a green screen. When I lay that on top of the background, everything that is green becomes see through (which is why you should not where green shirts). The top layer are the dinosaurs which are also over a green screen. They must be on top, otherwise I would always be in front of them.
It sure did, you bright and competent student. So I just filmed the extra me images and then saved them as a video. Then I opened a new project and used that as one of my three layers. So I had the background (layer 1), me talking (layer 2), and the extra versions of me (layer 3). By doing that, I can include as many layers as I want.

Now we save the finsihed video and send it to Lord Alford to upload to YouTube!
